  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Bean (Atkinson) cannot believe his luck when he wins a camcorder and an all-expense-paid vacation to Cannes, France in a Church raffle. But, problems arise in Paris when he is misdirected when changing train stations and he has to find his own way to Cannes. Mr. Bean

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.84:1 DVD exhibits a bright, almost washed-out picture. Fleshtones have a pallid appearance, making people look somewhat sickly. Resolution is fairly good, but the image can have a harsh, digitized appearance. Colors are somewhat undersaturated and the color palette favors warm hues of brown and red. Edge enhancement can be recognized at times but compression artifacts are not overly distracting. (Danny Richelieu)
